Hello Grade 3 Families!
With only 3 school days, the week went by very quickly! We made the most of it and were able to put everything into place for the students to be able to start working on their Science Project Landforms and Bodies of Water models during the long weekend^^*!
I have posted information for this project in “Class Info“. The link is right beside “Blog“. The Grade 3 students will start to make their models and start writing the script for their skit on Tuesday; they should be ready to start their Landforms and Bodies of Water videos in 2 weeks time.
Even though the Catholic Educators Conference was experienced differently this year, it was still extremely enriching in its content; they had such amazing speakers! It will be great to be able to incorporate some of the knowledge that was shared into our classrooms.
On this coming Wednesday we will be celebrating Ash Wednesday. We will be accessing the parish YouTube channel and replaying that morning’s parish Mass at 9:05 am. Each class will be provided with a small bowl of blessed ashes. When it comes time during the mass for ashes to be distributed, I will pause the playback and distribute the ashes to the Grade 3 students by sprinkling a small amount over each student’s head, without touching them, and say “Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Afterwards, Father will come to St. Paul’s to administer communion and blessings.
This too will be different and an Ash Wednesday that we will all remember.
Have a wonderful time celebrating St. Valentine’s Day and Family Day during this extremely long weekend!
